How to Avoid Collaborative Overload

How to Avoid Collaborative Overload

Whether in a classroom or conference room, collaborative efforts have been highlighted as the keys to success when it comes to co-creation, innovation, and maximized productivity. Supporting research has led companies and schools to redesign gathering spaces, prioritizing openness, and ample meeting rooms over isolated desks, yet new emerging studies warn of a new danger: Collaborative Overload.

Identifying Overload

It may seem contradictory to imagine excessive collaboration as detrimental to overall productivity; however, corporate success depends on focused collaboration, instead of excessive collaboration. For example, studies conducted by the Harvard Business Review indicate that as much as one-third of valuable employee feedback is actually generated by only 3% to 5% of the participating workforce, leading to eventual stress, burnout, and apathy. All these effects can kill the necessary engagement and heighten turnover rates. In other industries, such as higher education, this leads to lower retention rates and less student engagement, which –just like in business– harms the entire institution.

Minimizing disengagement without losing collaboration is vital to transform overloaded spaces into purposeful meeting areas designed for targeted results.
